Note the following differences the default shell and environment in the Oracle Solaris 11 release as compared to earlier releases of Oracle Solaris.
In previous releases of Oracle Solaris, the default shell environment was Korn Shell (ksh). In the Oracle Solaris 11 release and the previously released beta version, Oracle Solaris 11 Express release, the default shell has been upgraded to ksh93.
The default interactive shell is the Bourne-again (bash) shell. When used as a login shell, bash retrieves the configuration information from the first instance of .bash_profile, .bash_login, or .profile files.
The default path now lists /usr/gnu/bin before /usr/bin. Also, the MANPATH environment variable no longer is required. The man (1) command determines the appropriate MANPATH based on the $PATH environment variable setting
Files previously located in the /usr/sfw directory now are located in the /usr/bin directory.
